NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The high demand for COVID vaccinations is putting stress on New York’s supply of doses.

“We will, by the end of today, fully utilize all of the dosages that have been delivered. Week six dosages are being delivered as we speak,” said Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Meantime, Mayor Bill de Blasio is calling for flexibility in administering second doses. The mayor says nearly 65,000 doses are being held for second injections, which won’t be administered for another two or three weeks.
